2.64/5  rDev -29.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Poured from bottle into tulip glass

A: Black, opaque, poured a 1 finger cream-colored head that quickly subsided. Leaves marginal lacing.

S: I get definite notes of malty chocolate, some hop character.

T: As advertised, hops up front, fades to chocolately malt, and bitter throughout with a strongly bitter aftertaste. Too strong and too alkaline in my opinion. I was looking for something sweeter.

M: Carbonation is a tad high, I was hoping for a smoother, creamier mouth-feel. The bitterness cuts through any smoothness the beer might have otherwise.

O: Not very complex, not that balanced, not even really that drinkable unless you love alkaline-type bitterness. In short, "Move along, nothing to see here folks."

Pours an opaque brown with a thin light brown head. No serious lacing. Smells sweet and malty, lightly fruity and light hops.

Tastes of sweet rosated malt. Spicy with a light bitterness. Mostly sweet dark malt. A long lightly bittersweet aftertaste. A bit thin for a porter IMO. Overall it's too sweet and the flavors don't mesh. Not for me.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

S: Fairly bold fruitiness, light coffee roastiness.

L: Very dark brown with some brown highlights. Tan creamy head with good retention and lacing.

T: Fruitiness mixed with a light coffee roastiness. Medium low citrus bitterness leads to a mellow slightly roasty finish. Fairly clean, but boring.

M: Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Quite fruity porter, but overall pretty bland.

Want to thank my sister and BIL for this bottle. Poured a 12oz bottle into a shaker pint.

A-Was a dark brown apprerance with a light brown head that disaapeared quickly. Lacing was light

S - Sweet smell for a porter

T - Malty with a slight roast flavor smooth but underwhelming

M- a bit thin

O-not a bad drinker but nothing special. Very average in flavor. It is a beer that I could drink a couple with no problem but in the same respect would not seek it out.

Poured a medium-dark brown with minimal head and no lace. Smells of grainy coffee malts and not much else. Not a lot of flavor here either; just sweet medium-dark coffee malt. Light-to-medium body with medium carbonation and slight creaminess.

An inoffensive and dull also-ran of a porter.

Served this 12 oz. brown bottle in a Guinness tulip. Best by: 6/13/12. (just under the wire). The body was light brown, but difficult to see through. Root beer or dark cola colored. The minimal head left a tiny ring.

The smell was walnuts and chocolate.

The taste was lightly roasty. Milk chocolate and cola. Lightly bitter finish. Very easy to drink.

The mouthfeel was medium to light with gentle carbonation.
